Spirit Orbs – Spirits in Your Photographs

Spirit Orbs in Egypt

Spirit orbs are balls of energy that show up in some of your photographs. Some people think that this is a spirit and other people say it’s just a speck of dust reflecting light. Have you ever seen spirit orbs in your photos? What does it mean if you see them around one person in particular?

According to some websites, you can create the right conditions for orbs to be captured. They do this with small dust particles or water droplets that are put into the atmosphere as the picture is being taken.

Are the orbs in your photos dust? Maybe. But then again, maybe not. Consider the following.

Spirit Orbs Close Up

Spirit has an easier time working with electrical items. Your stereo, phone, computer, and digital camera. I think it has to do with frequencies and their resonance being either easily manipulated by spirit, or maybe they can change their vibrational frequencies to match.

My friend’s son decided he wanted to capture his spirit guide on camera. He asked his spirit guide to sit on the couch, and then he snapped a picture with his digital camera. There was an orb hovering right above the couch cushions, just like his guide was sitting there posing!

In many pictures of spiritual places – Mount Shasta, tombs in Egypt, stone circles in England, churches – there are many, many orbs in one picture. Is this because there are so many spirits attracted to these sites? Or are they all full of “dust and water particles”?

In one house clearing, I felt a spirit following me as I walked through the house. It was as if she was seeing what I was doing and waiting until I got to one particular room that was meaningful to her (where we crossed her).

As I snapped photos in the house, I could see most of them had an orb in them. Not more than one, but just one. Is it likely that most of the rooms had one speck of dust that showed up or is this the spirit of the woman?

Sometimes people ask me why spirit would show up as a round ball of energy rather than in full form. I think it’s because this is closer to their natural state. Or it could be that it’s easier for them to manifest in this state rather than form a full figure. I really don’t know.

Spirit orbs can be of varying colours – blue, white, pink, etc. Sometime people see geometrical patterns or what may look like faces in the orbs when they magnify the photo on their computer screen.

It also seems that these orbs may show up around a particular person in several photos. If this is a spirit, then it’s likely that the spirit is associated with them (family member or guide) or is attracted to them for a particular reason.

Whether they are all spirit orbs or if it’s really dust or water reflection, I’ll leave up to you. I’ve seen and felt too many things on the energetic level for me to believe that they are all dust particles. I believe that spirit shows itself to us in many ways using the technology at hand.

    What about orbs flashing around on video? When there are many, does it mean many spirits or just the one? I have taken many videos with only light from camera and they seem to be having a party with me watching!

    • admin says:

      I haven’t had the opportunity to see orbs flashing around on video! Lucky you for capturing them! One orb is considered to be one spirit, so if you have many orbs, there are many spirits. I love your comment about them having a party with you. Who knows? Maybe they are!

      • ALICIA says:

        I ALSO CAPTURED ORBS ON VIDEO 2 MONTHS AGO, MY SISTER AND MY 3 NEPHEWS STAYED AT MY HOME WITH MY HUSBAND AND I AND HIS 5 KIDS, I HAD A DANCE COMPETITION BETWEEN ALL THE KIDS, MY YOUNGEST NEPHEW WENT FIRST HE HIS 7, SOON AS I STARTED THE MUSIC, THE ORBS CAME FLYING, SWOOPING BACK AND FORTH AS IF THEY WERE DANCING WITH HIM!

        I took a video of bedroom from my lap top then when I was wathing I saw white small objects like a snowflakes flying around the room and some of them was fast changing directions I still have this video

        • Selina says:

          Hi Leo,

          If you want to share your video with us, I can post it on the Orb Gallery. Just send it to me and give me permission to post it.

          Thanks,
          Selina

            I was taking a video of my dog in my living room and saw a few white orbs, like someone said in a previous post, they looked like they were partying. Zooming quickly “dancing. I began asking them to make the drapes move (the windows where shut). Well, they didn’t make the drapes move, but as soon as I stopped recording, I took a picture of the curtains….7 faces I have counted. There may be more…I have the photos and the videos (plural).

  2. Megan says:

    After my family had a reading with Selina last week over the phone I have embraced my spirituality. Selina was able to contact my grandfather who recently passed. It was a beautiful experience, I now know he is at peace and is just fine. So since this, I have read many of the blog articles on here and this one in particular caught my interest. I have gone through old pictures and found that orbs are evident in a few. :) Today was my second day contacting my spirit guide. I asked for them to sit on the couch so I could take a picture just like mentioned in this article above and it worked! I am so happy to be embracing this. Thank you Selina for having such a great website!! :) If any one would like to see my photo’s I can email them to you. I do not have a website or know how to post them here :( megangrant21@gmail.com

    • admin says:

      Hi Megan,

      Thank you for such kind words! I am so happy that what came through helped. I would love to see that picture of your spirit guide. I think I can post it for you so if you would like to send it me I’ll see what I can figure out.

      All the best,
      Selina

      • admin says:

        Megan! It took a while but I can now post links to photos (couldn’t figure out how to include the photo here through commentluv!) Thank you for sharing these photos with us.

        You’ll see Megan’s Guide in orb form by the top left pillow. Here is Megan’s photo.

        There is also a close up of the orb. Megan feels her Guide’s name is Gabrielle. Can you see a female face in this orb? Take a look!

    Hi, before my brother passed i took a photo and a white out space showed beside him in the photo as well as a gold and white light further behind him with less a defined outline. i think the white in my brothers photo was a guardian angel and perhaps the more white gold with less defined edges was a reflection from the white cutout guardian? perhaps?

    it is still recent since he died and i just took a photo of myself. in it is a very pink horse looking light near the ceiling which showed up? what would this pink horse looking light in the air around me be?

    • admin says:

      Hi! I am sorry to hear about your brother. Yes, it was very likely a guardian angel or other type of being that would be a protector or guide. The pink horse image is interesting! Assuming it’s not light refraction, it could be the same thing. It could also be a message to you. If you can send it to me, and don’t mind it posted here, I’ll take a quick look.

  4. Bla says:

    I have those in all my pictures! Every one. What’s that mean? I used to think it was my camera but then I got a new one and ya same thing. And they are not dust particles in one photograph one blocked out my entire face.

    • admin says:

      Sounds like you have a lot of spirits around you! Some people tend to attract this activity. This happens because they are either very supported by spirit, or they have a gift themselves and spirits are trying to contact them.

      • nadia says:

        That is really interesting. If these orbs are in all the photo you’ve ever taken, could you post a couple?! I would like to compare it to a photo of mine.

        • nadia says:

          I would especially like to see the photo where it covers your entire face. If you end up posting a photo in a link, could you share that one in particular?

          • admin says:

            Thanks for your comments! I don’t have any photos of orbs covering my face. Does anyone else out there have photos to share?

          • Brittney marshall says:

            We have a lot of pics with orbs in them and one is covering our aunts face but you can still see her shadow on the wall behind her and a lot are always by my son and I what does this mean?

          • Selina says:

            Hi Brittney,

            Some people have auras that are bright. They can also be more open to the spirit world. Sometimes they are going through a particularly hard time in life and need more support from the spirit world. Other times, they live in areas that naturally attract spirit energy.

            These are some of the reasons why some people tend to have more orbs around than others. The ones around your son feel very loving – especially one that is female in energy. Nothing to worry about with this.

            Take care,
            Selina

  5. Tony Fitzpatrick says:

    Hi. My partner and I stayed at the Coombe Abbey Hotel near Coventry UK last night (room 140) this part of the building dates back to 1150 with an array of history including involvement by Henry V111 and James 1, Guy Fawkes. After dinner and late evening I took some photos of the amazing room we had been given, the flash photos (on my mobile) showed numerous Orbs, one photo had 5. All sizes. Never in the same spot from photo to photo. My lens were clean. My partner loved the experience, she even tried to talk to them. I spent the rest of the night under the bed sheets, terrified. Your site certainly explains to me what its all about. Maybe as written above, they just wanted to party with us! Was fascinating though.

  6. Beth Crysel says:

    My grandmother died on Sunday, her funeral was Thursday, someone at the dinner after the funeral took a picture of My uncle, my aunt and her husband, there were so many orbs around them like crazy, especially the one right by my uncle, it is so bright white. I would love to share this picture with you and see what you would say. Please contact me if you are interested. My mom has so many questions to see if My grandmother was these orbs.

    • admin says:

      Hi Beth! Thank you for sharing the photo with us! First of all, there are many spirit orbs here and some are related, some are not. There is a very strong female presence on the right side just behind where everyone is standing. Also, the orb in the front which is bright feels like it’s posing for the picture – not a random placement. I agree with you – it does feel like a grandmother energy. Looks like you had a full family portrait!

      Here is Beth’s Family Photo that she sent me. It has tons of orbs!

  7. Samantha says:

    I would love to share the videos i captured with you so that maybe You can tell me if they are legitimate orbs or just dust.

    hello,my brother passed away on Jan.7,2013.On Sept 29,2012 he went to his daughters wedding,he has been sick for 10 yrs,in and out of comas,on life support,he has always came through,1 month before the wedding,he was on life support and in a coma,1 week before the wedding,he got better,today,I was looking at the photo of my brother and mother from the wedding,and for the 1st time I looked real good and I see what looks like a spirit walking,and I see mist and I see a face in the tree,Im gonna send you the picture,please enlarge it so you see the face in the tree,please tell me what you think!Thank you

  9. Kirstie says:

    My son has been very sick and we almost lost him a few months ago and since then when we take photos he has an extreme amount of haziness. What could this be? Could I send the photos they are very odd.

    • admin says:

      Not sure – I’d have to see them. Could be his aura you are picking up. When people have a hazy or film in their auras, it could indicate sickness. Some psychics see this when a person is not so love and light, has an illness, or does drugs.

  10. John Jardine says:

    Last night, 18 July 2013, as I sat on the front porch of our ranch house with our Granddaughter, my wife took several pictures of her using a good quality flash camera. In several of the pictures (not all of them) there were as many as a dozen plus orbs of varing sizes and colors ranging from almost transparent to bright blue and even pink. Some of these orbs were in the background while others were within a few inches of my Grandaughter. Our ranch is located a good 10 miles from any known cemetary. Although I have heard about orbs, this is my first time seeing them. I do not think this was a dust partical anomoly as the orbs only appeared in about 4 of the dozen or so pictures that were taken. We all found this very interesting.

    • admin says:

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the comment! I love that there are different colours in the orbs. Contrary to popular belief, spirits do not tend to hang out in cemeteries. (Why hang out in a cemetery when you can go visit all the people you love and there is so much to do in other realms?) That’s why I like to walk there in particular – because it is so quiet.

    My husband and I were going through some pictures that we took last fall in the park on our bikes came apone one picture with my son myself and my daughter.my husband took a couple of pictures of us standing with our bikes,in the first two pictures you see a white light moving towards my daughter the last picture my daughters face looked like an old women her eyebrows were white and her hair,also her face looked old.It sends shivers down my spine,please if you know what this means let me know.

    • admin says:

      Hi Nancy,

      Thanks for your comment! Sounds like you’ve captured a spirit in your picture. Probably a family member in spirit or someone who is watching over her. Have you tried enlarging the photo to see if you recognize the face? Many people believe that spirit orbs are a form that spirits take to travel as it is easier for them. Many people see faces in some of the orbs, although geometrical shapes are more common.

      Selina

  12. Kas says:

    On a cloudy day about 2 weeks ago, the sun came out for a minute and I took a picture of it to lure my sister to my pool so we could hang out…..it worked, LOL. She died in her sleep last week (at 40). I noticed tonight there is an orb quite a bit lower than the sun, hovering over my house. Was this a sign or something? If you need to see it, I will send it to you.

  13. Troy says:

    Hello,
    I have recently began capturing orbs in pictures where I am currently staying. Some are inside the house and others are outside. I don’t know why I am capturing them now and it frightens me to be honest. My wife and I stayed at an historic hotel in downtown San Antonio called the Menger Hotel which was built next to the Alamo. Its reported to have anywhere from 30 to 40 entities depending on differnt reports. It all started then July 24, 2013 when for fun we downloaded a iphone application that automatically snaps a picture when it detects anomalies in the area. Well I didnt really believe that it was really a “ghost capturing instrument” However, it works because everyday since then I have captured orbs, what appears to be light refraction or electric charges, and shadow like shapes.
    I lost my brother in February and I am still dealing with his death. We were only 11 months apart in age. He was 48 and I am 49. We worked together off and on for many years, lived in same city with mutual friends and were each others best friend. Im trying to see if there is a correlation with these orbs and my brother? Are they trying to give me a message? I am having a hard time trying to figure out what it is I should do? I am confused and a little weary. Any advice would be of great help. Also could I share a few of my pictures with you. They too have pictures of people in them.
    Thanks, Troy

    • admin says:

      Hi Troy,

      I’m sorry to hear about your brother’s passing. You may be attracting more of these orbs because of what you are going through recently with your emotions. We are always supported but in times like you are experiencing, spirit tends to help and come around a little more than usual. It is not unlikely that your brother is visiting and indeed may be one of these orbs.

      As to what to do? You can take comfort that his spirit is around and if you like, you can speak to him knowing that he can hear you (you don’t need to do this outloud – in your mind is fine).

      There were orbs before the app, and there will continue to be orbs after the app. We are going through a planetary change where you will notice more and more activity. It’s just that now you are aware of them as you can capture them on your phone.

      I would love if you can share a couple of pictures with us. Thank you for your comment and all the best,
      Selina

    hi we have just moved into a house a few months back.we had alot of hassle from my husbands uncle in our old home so he bought it and we left and moved into a pub. we were friends with the owner and he died a few years back. we are ll under alot of stress with bills n are missing home. i started taking pictures in the pub part of the house and there is alot of orbs some blue one orange big and small in alot of the pictures especially the ones with the children. there is alot of work to be done and we find it alot of stress to try and do it with no money. why are we seeing these circles do they want to harm us or are they trying to comfort us

    • admin says:

      Hi, Sorry for the late reply. I would doubt that they are trying to harm you. If you are sensitive to the energy, you’ll be able to tell by the way you feel about that energy. If you are scared, then you won’t be able to feel past your own fear. My gut feel is that you are okay. Selina

  19. Elsie says:

    I find it very interesting reading up on other peoples comments on this website, it has given me more of a clue to what is happening in my photos too.

    My mum died when I was just 14, and 3 years later I have encountered myself having a delayed reaction to her death earlier this year. I find it unusual that since I have being vulnerable with my stress this year that I have noticed strange circular objects appearing behind me in my photos, some are greeny red, and some are just clear or bright.

    I thought I was going mad but I soon realized that these circular objects keep on reappearing in my photos… I seem to think I’m being watched or being followed. I can’t say I have ever picked such things up on my digital camera before until this year, and the proof is always behind me, or close to me. It has been a distressful time over the past few years for my dad, brother and myself; although it seems to be me and only me that these Orbs are being spotted :/ I really can’t justify why.

    I’d really appreciate it if I could be as kind to help me solve why they keep on reappearing in my photos (more and more) by each month, and if I’m honest.. I’m not one of the superstitious types but it can’t just be “Dust and water particles” if they keep on appearing in my photos like they do. Many thanks! :) x

    • admin says:

      Hello Elsie, Thanks for your comments. I can think of two reasons why you are seeing more and more orbs in your photos. First, I have noticed that in the first while after a loved one has passed, they seem to come around the person grieving quite a lot. Then, after some time (which depends on when the person starts to feel less grief), I notice that the spirit still comes around, but just not as often. You can always ask them to come if you need them around, so it’s not like they aren’t available to you, but I do see that on their own, they tend to come by to check on you less.

      Secondly, it could be related to the increasing vibration rates of some of the population related to what is known in spiritual arenas as ascension. Right now, the earth’s vibrations are lifting and we are also being opened up as part of our combined ascension process. So it could be that the spirit orbs are more manifest to us.

      Either way, looks like someone wants you to know that they are there with you!

      Thank you for sharing this with us.

      All the best,
      Selina

    I’m not one to have let or have pictures taken of me but I do like to take pictures of my family. I’ve taken pictures with different cameras and have noticed spirit orbs appear many times. This past weekend we celebrsted my little sisters 15th birthday party. I took pictures of my little sister, my mom, and my husband getting ready in my apartment and noticed orbs in some pictures with all 3 of them. Then getting to reception a photographer took our pictures all came out so nice. But on one that was taken of me and my husband the picture came out but on my side of the picture was white from the top to bottom and you could barley make out my face what would that mean? I’ve always been intrigued with spirit world and do believe in all life continues even after your gone.

    • admin says:

      Hi Yuri, Maybe spirit photobombed your picture? LOL! Seriously though, it could be spirit showing itself. It wouldn’t be the first photo like that I’ve seen. Selina

  21. Elizabeth says:

    I recently saw myself in a picture with several other people and after my irritation wore of (I don’t like having my picture taken lol), I noticed all of these orbs around me. I even saw one near my heart center. One floating way, way above my head as well. There were two of these pictures taken and besides an orb around one other woman, I saw them around me, big and small. I was both surprised and not because I see Angel lights all of the time (different colored sparkles that show up randomly), and I can feel the presence of my Angels and guides when I call them. Sometimes I even see really, really tiny feathers floating in front of me. But seeing those orbs surrounding me in that picture was more… proof for me, you could say! I said to myself, oops, my spirituality is showing.

  22. Katelyn says:

    So my mom passed away 5 years ago from cancer I was only 11 well we took her on many trips and took lots of pictures like at the beach and at the mountains well we saw these pink orange orbs and figures of course it had to of been an guardian angel well I’m 16 now and over the summer my uncle had taken a pic of me and months later realized there was a white figure that looked like a woman beside me and we figured it may of been the light from the window or the camera but I still felt like it was my mom just last night I was back over at my aunt and uncles house and he took a pic of me and my aunt off guard and the white figures were back and this is with a different phone and camera well we went back and looked at one of the same photos that my aunt had taken with the first pic and then looked at the one my uncle took and its the same picture in the same room and same position and in one pic the figure is there and in the other it is not. I really need opinions on what to think and is there anyway I could upload the pic on here for you to see?? Its pretty amazing! And this is all true I have not edited it or anything!! I swear in my life!

    Hi Selina,

    My 2 year old son was diagnosed with cancer in February. It’s been the most difficult time I ever thought possible for me and my family. The whole first year of his life, I would watch him on his monitor and saw nothing. Then, when he got sick, we would see white orbs flying around his room. Some are dull and some are very bright. One actually got larger as it came closer to the monitor. Our hope is that these lights are here to help him heal from this disease. Thank you for having this site. You seem like a very special person.

    • admin says:

      Hi Denise, I can’t imagine what you and your family have been going through. Children tend to have at least one strong spirit that watches over them in a special way. I’m sure that during this time, there is much help for all of you in the spirit world. I’ll put you and your family in my prayers.

    I have capture so many orbs in different size and it travel from different direction and some dissipear into the wall and ceiling. I took the video in my bedroom with my phone’ and some of the orbs come in differant color as well. I also capture orbs in small an big and some move slower than other and a few move in full speed, some of the footage I capture of the Orbs was on the floor and on the wall. I am cambodian, In my religious, we believe in spirit and recarnation. I believed my ancesters and grandparent pay a visit to us. I am thrill and happy to capture the amazing Orbs in my phone, I am not scare or afraid because they are there for a reason and that is to protect us.

  25. Melissa says:

    Last night, while videotaping our 18 month old granddaughter dancing in our living room, there were orbs flying in and out of the video, some light and some very bright and evident. The orbs seem to love being around the young people in our life. I don’t recall ever seeing orbs in any photos or videos (and I have taken LOTS) in the 20 years we lived in our house until AFTER my parents and my husband’s parents died. My husband’s father, mother and my mother all died within a 9 month span. My father had died 4 years prior to that. I am convinced that the orbs are the spirits of our parents who love being around our kids and grandkids. The orbs really started to show up last Thanksgiving when all my grandchildren were together for the first time. I consider them a blessing.

    So my daughter and friend was at a basketball game today,and they took a picture and a whole body with a clear face appeared in the picture on her friends face…I need help on trying to explain it to her because idk what to say….HELP ANYBODY

    • admin says:

      Hi Nicole,

      Without being able to see the picture, I can only give you what I think is going on. Have you ever heard of something called transfiguration? It’s when spirit shows itself as an overlay on someone else. Sometimes it can happen when channelling a spirit through you, but it can also happen just over the the person too without channelling the spirit. Usually just the face transfigures although it is not unheard of for part of the body to transfigure as well. It’s really just ectoplasm or energy from spirit that they manifest in order to show themselves. As I say, that’s my best guess. By the way, if this is what is going on, it was just for that moment and not something permanent with your daughter’s friend.

    My grandson 15 passed away on 1/8/2014. Going thru Christmas photos, taken only 7 days before he had a sudden and fatal asthma attack, their were Orbs all around only him in the photo’s? Why did they appear Before his Death? In a photo outside in the snow, there is a streak of light and ghostly appearance next to him. His name was Orian and we live just 100 miles from Mt. Shasta- where my ancestors are from. We feel like he was Chosen- but why him! His great-grandparents are in their middle 80’s & in ill health, but are hanging on.

    • admin says:

      Hi Donna,

      I am so sorry to hear about your grandson passing away at such a young age. I know that spirit tends to support us more during the time just before our passing. I believe that they not only help us with the actual transition, but also help to prepare our energy. Perhaps that is why your grandson had so many orbs around him before he passed.

      You say that he was chosen, and indeed he may have been. This probably would have been decided before he incarnated. We understand a little about the other side and why these things happen, but really, in this vast and complex universe, we can only trust that there is a Divine Plan as our human understanding is limited at this time.

      I wish you peace.

    My sister and I were down at the beach late one evening. We both felt as if there was a presence with us. I took out my cell phone and snapped a few pictures… Nothing. Then I said aloud “if there is anyone here with us, please stand beside my sister while I take a picture” Sure enough it appeared. It was a long spine-shaped light. I’ve been trying to search for the name of this particular anomaly. Would you happen to know what it is? If you need to see the pic, let me know.

    Hi Jody,

    If you have a photo to share for the orb gallery, please email it to me. My email address is under contacts. A jpg is best. Also, you must have permission from all people shown in the photo that it’s okay to be posted. If you want the faces blocked out, I can do that through photoshop, but I will not touch any other part of the photo.

    Thanks,
    Selina

    ive had a few strange happenings in my life.the first one i thought was a dream for over 25 years untill a few months ago i was talking to my brother and said the same. It was on a walk with family as kids,we spotted an old broken down house just off the path in a woods. We went in to have a look and there was a big black dog in the corner with a black pot behind it. We tried to get around it but it would not let us get near the pot. About five years later at home in my cabin bed,my bed room door slowly opened and the same big black dog walked in.with a blink of the eye it was gone. That was it for a long time,untill at secondary school a friend and i were being silly with a wejie board in the woods when a directed gust of wind came towards us rattling the bushes as it got closer. It was like something/someone was heading for us. We both just left the board and ran away. Then a few months ago at a friends house,they were trying to contact spirits(i stayed out of the circle after my last scare) they were taking photos of everyone and the room but the only orbs were around me,in more than one photo. Is this a good or bad sign?

    • admin says:

      Hi Guy,

      Sounds like you have had some pretty powerful experiences! A couple of possibilities about the dog. Either the dog was astral travelling, it’s spirit came to see you. Or perhaps this was a spirit coming as the dog. The dog spirit may be a guide for you. In any case, the dog doesn’t feel like a bad thing.

      As for Ouiji boards, I would suggest you not play with that. All sorts of lower vibrational spirits can use it. So you won’t know who you are calling in. If you want to work with spirits, develop yourself so your vibrations will connect with higher spirits – i.e. Spirit Guides, Angels, etc.

      As for the ritual with the circle, as your friends were in the circle if they did things correctly then they would be protected. Outside the circle there were likely spirits around and this is what you captured in the photo around you. Typically, orbs are not a bad sign, as you put it. They are just spirit around you in a spherical form.

      Please be careful doing these types of rituals. If you or your friends don’t know what you are doing you can open portals and attract lower level vibrational spirits.

      All the best,
      Selina

    Hi,

    I have recently started to be intouch with my spiritual side, and more or less accepting that on more than one occasion I have had some pretty awesome experiences that not many people get to. I had lost my father at the age of 12, and quite frequently feel his presence.
    This is a strange little story gor you…If I ever do something I’m not supposed to, a very strong spirit presence is felt… And I see a face, a face that looks like a light is right above their heads, so defined lines and ‘gaunt-ness’ is visible, and it appears to be of a green tone, like its a green light. however because I am always guilty of something when it appears I can never look directly at it, but I feel like it forced its face in face as if like I’m being told off, and this eyes, I can see this eye directly in front of mine, weather I close my own eyes tightly trying not to see it or just blatantly looking past it or away trying not to see it. This face always seems made, or disappointed depending what I am doing at the time or what I intend to do.

    Going off subject a little, a few days ago I was doing a guided meditation, wanting to meet one of my spirit guides. I had asked it to meet me in the meditation, along with my guardian for protection (as I was feeling a little scared) the meditation was unfortunately interrupted by me getting a fright by a noise that was unavoidable right as I was making vision with what seemed like could be a spirit guide… So unfortunately I lost the connection, and getting such a fright from the noise I didn’t feel up to it to try again that day.

    Now why I am originally writing, is because I’m a truck driver and work away, I like to send my boyfriend selfies of my self so he remembers what I look like. Last night when taking a few practise selfies trying to get a good one, I noticed one came out really strange looking and out of focus with strange colours and I was about to delete it. But I had to have a closer look. As I zoomed in I noticed how different each side of my face looked, and thought ‘eww yuck’ is that what I look like??? So I zoomed in even closer to one side…. NO! No that is not what I look like at all!!! That ‘yucky’ side if my face…. Is the face I see as described above… Colour and all…. And the eye… I can never forget that eye. Only difference is, is that it’s wearing my glasses…

    And in the other side of my ‘normal’ looking face, is covered by a purple haze, and in the purple haze, by my ear, I see what looks like an animated cal-like figure. With 2 eyes(the white cord cuts thru 1eye) and a big open mouth like its creeping out from behind my head laughing!!

    I can also see a hand stretch out palm up below my mouth heading over my shoulder…

    I’ve asked my boyfriend, and a close friend what they think. And they have said its just a bad lighting photo with glare…. But I feel strongly it’s more…. Have my guardian and spirit guide shown themselves anyway? It was just over 24 hours after I had asked to meet me, and I’m just not sure if my own head is messing with me.

    What do you think??

    How do I send you the pic?

    • admin says:

      Hi Jana,

      Okay now that’s an interesting photo! I see the one you sent that has all the light streaming in. It looks like light, but I agree with you, it doesn’t feel exactly just light. And I can see the one face you are talking about on the side. I think that the light is just highlighting some of the energy that is coming around you. Looks like you have a couple of spirits playing with you. They feel familiar so I think one is a guide, the other one isn’t quite as strong but doesn’t feel bad. One feels male, one feels more female. It’s the male one that is coming through stronger.

      When spirit overlays their energy or ectoplasm as some people say, on top of you, it’s called transfiguration. When I teach my class on auras and we take turns sitting so people can practice, often we see spirit faces over the student faces. They aren’t possessed or anything, it’s just spirit showing themselves in this way.

      Thanks for sending the photos. Take care,
      Selina

    Hello. My mom passed in August of last year. Since then I have had 3 unexplained photos appear on my phone which I did not take. The first one looks cloudy but contains a woman’s face in the center with a bunch of faces surrounding it. The next two came just last week while I was at a park with my son. Appears as a bunch of circles but you can see faces in and around them. Can a spirit actually place pictures on your phone?

    • admin says:

      Hi Mary,

      Yes it is possible. Spirit works with electronics very well. It must be something about the resonance of electrical equipment that makes it easier for them to manipulate. I have see many photos of spirit and ectoplasm. It is not uncommon. Most people capture orbs, but on occasion body forms, faces, or other images will appear.

      Take care,
      Selina

    I no I am posting this rather late but in have just woken up to use the bathroom as I am currently pregnant I reached for my phone to use the light so I could see we’re I was going without realising I had set my phone on record as its recorded a video u have an orb on my phone it’s do clear it’s moving around my screen.. The past couple of days my cat has been acting really strange like somebody is petting him and he’s purring for no reason and its not like my cat. Also since my grandpa passed away when I was 16 I have always been very cold buts its only my left side which was the side he used to stand I am now 21 and wondering could this be him or am I just being stupid :)

    • admin says:

      Hi Toni,

      You’ve caught an orb on video very clearly, already been able to sense your grandfather’s spirit, and your cat is acting as if someone is making him happy. I’d say you have a pretty strong case that there is spirit around. Interesting that you are also pregnant as I notice that spirit activity can increase around a pregnant woman or a baby. It’s family in spirit that is there to help and protect. So yes, I do feel that this could be your grandfather. The presence feels very loving.

      All the best,
      Selina

    Hi Selina,

    My wife and I have been taking photos of orbs in our house now for the past few months, since Thanksgiving, in fact. It all started when I captured 4 small ones in different areas of our dining room. They were all traveling together. Then, later that night, our daughter sent us a picture that her husband had taken while at our house. It is of me standing and above me was, well, not an orb, but a woman’s face. She appeared to be smiling. Again, not an orb, it was a real woman’s face. My wife thought it resembled her, but I think it looks like my mom, when she was younger (my mom passed in 2012).

    Anyway, something at the top of this thread, someone mentioned that it looked like the orbs were having a party with her. The video below, which I took last night, is in the same wheelhouse. Please check it out and let me know what you think. We have these orbs every night. You may have to add a hyperlink to open it. Thank you, Bernie

      Hi Selina, I’m sorry, I’m having a hard time sending the video to other people also. I now have about 10 videos and the orb come out every night…many orbs. It is really quite amazing. I will work on this again Friday. I’d love for you to see it. I’ve had family come over too check it out. Everyone is in awe. We don’t know why they have chosen to come visit us but right now, we are enjoying it. They all seem to be good/happy orbs. Again, I will see what I can do to send this to you this Friday. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait! Sincerely, Bernie P.S., if you have a Google account, click on the link in my previous post again, then sign in to Google when it prompts you. If you don’t have one, you should set one up, then click on the link, and follow the prompt. It’s worth the couple of minutes.

    Hi! This is Selina. My apologies for not responding to everyone. Unfortunately something happened with wordpress and I missed out on a bunch of your comments. That is now resolved. Thank you for sending them!

    Also, although I would like to send every one of you a personal reply, I don’t always have time given my schedule with clients and teaching intuition classes. I do try my best and will continue to do so.

    Please continue to share your experiences with us! Just know there are others that get hope and comfort from knowing they are not alone with what they experience.

    I lost my son on 1/7/2012 He had suffered a long illness and was trying to raise 2 boys by himself. When I wen to the small town he lived in Havre MT I had to wait for his viewing for about an hour My husband and I went to a local café and went up stairs in this downtown mall to see the two little gift shop galleries. I found three paintings of spirit orbs. I felt it was a sign from my son. Havre MT is a small western town with not to many people that are into this type of spirituality. It really helped me with my grief. So I think spirt orbs can also be the loved ones who have crossed over

    • admin says:

      Hi Beth,

      I am sorry to hear about your son. Yes, you are right – spirit orbs can also be those we love you have crossed over. I`m glad to hear that your son gave you the sign you needed to know that he is around. It really does help with grief when we receive these signs.

      Thank you for sharing your story with us. Many blessing to you and your family.

    My daughter’s father died in a car accident 6 months ago. Her preschool graduation was today. I took 40 pictures and only two pictures had orbs in them, both were of my daughter on stage receiving her certificate. The pictures I took of the other kids on stage from the same angle with the same lighting did not contain these orbs. I had to google it and came across this website and am glad I did as I would like to believe he was there with us in spirit.

  42. pamela says:

    I have a granddaughter who at certain times of the year when you take pictures of her she gets a green orb . Once it was all around her feet & momths later the same color orb was all around her shoulders . Its a very pretty color green

  43. shane22 says:

    hi was at my mates 30th birthday party, took a photo and see an orb over my mates mum’s face, also her ex-partner passed away and she’s with a new partner who is also in the photo what does this mean?

    • admin says:

      Hi Shane,

      I feel that the ex-partner wanted to be seen in spirit and that’s why the orb (which is the way that spirit can take form when not communicating with us) put himself right front and center over your friend’s mother’s face. It’s just so she knows he is there in spirit.

  44. Sherry Bent says:

    My husband was killed 10 months and 1 day to the date. It was very traumatic. I was ok at the beginning. But as time goes by I am finding it difficult day by day. More so each day that passes. I have been looking, begging and praying for a sign. Well something felt different one day in my house. I was alone but felt not alone and something was there. Just a strange sensation. I snapped pictures all through the house and came up with nothing. Snapped some more and came up with a pic which has a bright orb. I swear my cat is starring at it. Just two days ago I took more. Now I have several pictures in a matter of an hour multiple orbs. I swear I can see faces. But not my husbands. In a few I can see a lady. Not that I can recognize. Some orbs are small and some are big. Some are light. I have one that is bright. Very bright. Could someone please take a look at them and tell me what you think. On the first day I had a calming feeling I am sure my husband was there. My girls think I am crazy. They are trying to get me to see someone. I don’t think so. Help me please.

    • Selina says:

      Hi Sherry,

      I’m so sorry to hear about your husband and the difficult time you’ve had in moving on. Sometimes the orbs that people capture in photos can be spirits connected to you, not connected to you, or guides. I’d have to see the photo to feel the energy.

      You can send the photo to me by email. If it’s okay to share with others on the blog photo gallery, please let me know.

      Thanks,
      Selina

    Hi there my nan passed away 2 weeks ago from cancer, we were extremley close and i have been struggling without her…Ime and my fiance had a few drinks one night and decided to video the dark house, we got alot of footage, loads of orbs, floating feather type lights everywhere around me and my sleeping children. id like to think its nan, but im a little freaked out now :( We also zoomed in to an orb and saw a female face that looked like my nan!! is our minds playing tricks??

    • Selina says:

      Hi Lindsey,

      Sorry to hear about your Nan passing. Were your minds playing tricks? Probably not. Some feel stronger than others, and they all seem to be either neutral or loving. Try not to be too freaked out. They were all there before you saw them. Now that you know that you have spirit around you loving and supporting you, maybe it will help you to find some peace.

      Take care,
      Selina

    I have many pictures with orbs in them, I just took one of my rescue German shepherd and she is covered in an orb,,,I took several within seconds of each other and only one shows a huge orb…I also have one of my cousins wedding, (her mom passed couple years back and they were very close, Tara was very sad her mom was not at her wedding, I was snapping pictures while she was making her speech, she thanked her in laws for accepting her and wished her mom was there, she proceeded to hug the in laws and I snapped, when I viewed the picture I was very very pleased to see an orb across her face and arms, it appears as if her mom was also in the group hug.

  47. Jeanni Jackson says:

    I would like to send these pictures but do not know how

    • Selina says:

      Hi Jeanni,

      You can email me the photo as a jpg to TorontoPsychicServices@gmail.com. If you send me photos, I would like to add them to the Orb Photo Gallery blog. I will need permission from you and everyone else in the photo to post, and if you prefer, I can block out the faces.

  48. Hannah James says:

    Hi! I am 13 years old and my moms father passed away one week before her wedding, and she told me he lived in Guam after her parents got divorced. After the wedding, my grandma found a wonderful man and he is now my pop-pop, and I love him very much, but I still wish I could meet my real grandpa. I wonder of he cares about me in heaven, and I have wondered that for a while. I prayed for him and asked for him to watch over my younger sisters and I. My dad’s dad passed away when I was eight, but I didn’t understand it than. I miss him, and also prayed for him. When my grandma passed away in February of 2014, I was so sad and realized how much I love her and I wish I would’ve saw her and called her more often. She did so much for my family and I can’t thank her enough. Anyways, my younger sister, who is eleven, was laying in my bed with me as I was showing her a story I wrote when something in the dark room caught my eye. A white ball was glowing, and it disappeared but within seconds had reappeared not far from its original spot. I thought i was going crazy but when my sister asked me “what is that?” I replied with “you can see it too?” We both watched what we now know is an orb travel around my bedroom, and nearly a foot away from my head. We were both so scared, but now a few months later she still comes in my room and occasionally we will see the orb. Even without my sister and if I am laying in my bed I will see it. It sometimes travels, but sometimes is just in one spot before disappearing. Id like to think this is one of my grandparents, or my dog who we put down at the age of thirteen in the summer of 2012, and I try not to be scared. I told my dad abiut it, and he says that they are good spirits and are only watching over me. He tells us that we have a special gift for seeing these orbs that most people cannot see, is this true? I just need some advice or ways to understand this better. Anything is appreciated. Thank you!

    • Selina says:

      Hi Hannah,

      Yes your father is correct in that you are being watched over. Many people are opening up to seeing orbs. It’s a gift that we all have but some people are just more open than others and some people haven’t opened up yet. There is more spiritual activity on the earth at this time and people are starting to shift because of changes in vibrational frequencies.

      Take care,
      Selina

  49. Marsha says:

    Hello,
    I don’t have a picture of an orb, but physically saw orbs in my bedroom last night. They weren’t very big, maybe the size of a golf ball, and they were pink and blue. There may have been other colors, but I don’t remember. At first, I thought something was wrong with my or that I was going to pass out,and then I realized the orbs were in front of me. They were moving, like small comets.

    This has never happened to me before…I can tell you that both my father and brother died in the room where I saw the orbs, and that they came to me on the anniversary of my mother’s death. Earlier in the evening, I had been weeping. I can’t seem to move forward after losing them all in such a relatively short span of time.

    The strangest thing is, I wasn’t afraid,but amazed. I stopped and watched them for a few seconds, and a peace came over me, but it never occurred to me that what I saw could have been spirit orbs until after my daughter mentioned it, later.

    I know this forum is for discussing photos, but you seem quite knowledgeable and I wanted to get your opinion. If they were indeed spirits, the doubts I’ve had since losing my family members have been erased. Do you think it could have been them, or perhaps spirit guides, guardian angels?

  50. Jan Patterson says:

    I have loads of videos of spirit orbs from millions jumping all over my bedroom I have never seen as many in one place dust does not flash while others are flying by. I did some more videos in the house I am in now yet again there was hundreds flying on one particular video one came right up to my phone it was huge and blue.

    I was looking back over my pics from when I went to India (rishikesh), and noticed a large orb near my head in the one I linked. The question is- what is it? If you zoom in, its transparent.

    Your views?

  52. deana says:

    Hello. I am writing because I took a video of my daughter dancing last night and at the 56 second mark an orb appears in the camera off to the right side of me. Another morning the buttons on my alarm system started making noises like someone was pressing them. On another occasion the 3rd bedroom room opened on its own after I shut no more than twenty minutes before. I just wanted to know should we be scared? I’m apprehensive to even be in there alone. Also how do I upload the video?

    • Selina says:

      Hi Deana,

      Sounds like someone is trying to get your attention! Although I know these unexpected things are frightening, there is no real reason to be scared. Depending on how brave you feel, you could ask this spirit the next time it’s around to tell you what the message is and to give it to you in a way you can understand. If you don’t feel that brave, you can’t tell that you don’t like it doing what it’s doing and to stop. Try it and see what happens.

      All the best,
      Selina

  53. Cathy says:

    Hello
    My sister has recorded mutable Orbs on her phone white ones, last night she recorded once again and there they where plus an orange Orb, can you please tell me what they mean and why they are all around her ? someone has told her when there’s so many Orbs around it means someone is close to death and they have come to prepare the sole Please help thanks Cathy

    • Selina says:

      Hi Cathy,

      Many orbs around someone does not necessarily mean it is certain they will pass. In fact, there could be many reasons that someone has many orbs around them. It could be they are going through something in life and there is a lot of spirit support around them. Or they may have a very bright high vibrational aura or be spiritually open and the spirits are attracted to that. Another possibility is that the spirits just wanted to be seen and allowed themselves to be captured on her recording. Or it could be that where she is recording has lots of energy and spirits just hang out where she is.

      Take care,
      Selina
